It's Time to Celebrate Virtual Commencement 2022

Commencement is one of the most joyous events at CSU. Every year, our university faculty and staff look forward to celebrating this incredible milestone with our graduates and their loved ones. In that spirit, we will host a virtual ceremony on May 27, 2022.  The deadline to register is April 4, 2022

Brief Overview of the Virtual Ceremony

We know a virtual ceremony will be different and want to provide a brief overview of how the ceremony will work so that you can decide if you want to participate.  After registration has ended on April 4, 2022 we will finalize the registration requests. 

On April 6, 2022 you will receive an email from our vendor, MarchingOrder, with instructions to create your graduate slide.  Here you will have the ability to upload a photo and quote that you would like displayed, in addition to the degree and honors (if applicable) already provided by CSU, as well as an opportunity to include phonetic spelling of your name and record pronunciation.  Please note that pictures and quotes must be appropriate.  These slides are what will be displayed when the degrees are conferred during the ceremony.  Slides must be completed by April 29, 2022.

A few days prior to the ceremony, we will send you the link to access the virtual ceremony page so you can bookmark.

Registration Information
